Johnstone’s Paint Trophy: Gillingham FC vs Yeovil

Gillingham FC vs Yeovil Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 1/8 finals of Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, Gillingham FC take on Yeovil.

Gillingham FC play very good this season in League One and they are one of the main candidates for promotion in Championship. They are standing at the 3rd position with only one point than leader Walsall. Gillingham have one of the best attacks in League One and they are still unbeaten at home (6-2-0). Home team failed to win in the previous two matches, so they will be fully motivated to win this game and qualified in the 1/4 finals of this competition.

Yeovil play in League Two, where they are standing in the relegation zone. Their main goal is to stay in league, so I’m not sure are they really interested in this competition. Visitors have managed to win only two games in League Two this season in 16 matches. They are playing for the upcoming weekend against Stevenage, so I believe that match is more important than this one in Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Gillingham FC vs Yeovil injuries and suspensions

Home team will be without their 2nd top scorer Luke Norris (13/3 f), while Harry Lennon (5/2 d) is doubtful. Visitors miss their first goalkeeper Artur Krysiak (15/0 gk) and an important defender Jakub Sokolik (15/1 d) due to suspension. Simon Gillett (0/0 m), Jack Compton (4/0 m), Jordan Gibbons (3/0 m) and Stephen Arthurworrey (14/1 d) are all injured, while Marc Laird (6/1 m), Ben Tozer (0/0 d), Omar Sowunmi (3/1 d) and Jamie Burrows (1/0 f) are all doubtful.

Gillingham FC vs Yeovil Prediction

Both teams will make some changes in team, but Gillingham are class above Yeovil, so I expect their easy win tonight.
